What customers say about "Features"
ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB OC Edition 3 GB GDDR5 192 Bit Memory Graphics Card
  • The card itself is more than adequately cooled with the dual fans.
  • Respectable GPU with fans that will last and great cooling.
  • Good core and clock speed boosts and respectable OC.
  • Seems like a great card at a great price. Good fans for me.
  • Good performance but fan very noisy at full speed.
MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING X 3G 3 GB GDDR5 Memory Zero Froze Cooling Graphics Card
  • This card is very quiet and in most cases completely silent due to the fans not spinning up.
  • I fired up my PC and the GPU immediately came to life - both fans worked fine and all of the LEDs lit up.
  • Runs cool and works like a beast! Fans do not spin until 60C so it runs quiet too.
  • Runs extremely cool. Rare the fans even have to turn on with MSI new long life technology.
  • Controlling the fan speeds using external software had no effect.
